Same route from South as others. Nice wooded hill.twg2724/08/2016
From chapel west, then North along path, which must be drying out as it wasn't that muddy. Trig point seemed slightly lower than bank to East.PeterD13/03/2016
1/7 Parked up minor road passed Pullastone farm. Space for 1 at 505335. I know we have had a wet winter but by jove this was a muddy one. Easy enough aside from the squelch. Trig stands in a mature woodland. Ancient rampart with large straight trunked tree marks the absolute height I'd say.stig_nest11/03/2016
Missed the church and parking not easy where I started from- bridleway to south east . Still muddy though.Mark Sims16/02/2016
With Bevsimon and co13/11/2015

Parked by old chapel to South. Nice dry track through trees and birdsong to summit area. Lovely hill top.nordicstar20/04/2014
Solo walk after a visit to Dinedor Camp. Stopped off at St Ann's Well and my fully charged phone went dead (battery) then came back again soon after. This is a great hillfort, a walk all the way round takes a while. The trig is in the centre, but the trees obscure the views.thesweetcheat15/03/2014
